2007 Great Plains Super Launch

 

The Great Plains Super Launch 2007 will be hosted by one of our newest ballooning groups, Central Nebraska Near Space Program (CNNSP). The events will be held in Grand Island, Nebraska over the weekend of July 6 - 8, 2007.

Friday's balloon conference will be held in a meeting room of the Howard Johnson - Riverside Inn.

Launch sites have yet to be finalized, but will be within 30 minutes of Grand Island.

 

Please note: There will not be an admission charge for GPSL 2007, but a free-will donation will be accepted to cover costs of the symposium.
